The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
In celebration of our founder Philip Tiedtke’s 70th birthday, we’re excited to host a special presentation of Terry Gilliam’s “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen,” one of Philip’s favorite movies of all time. Come experience this fantastical journey and all-star cast, including Robin Williams as King of the Moon.
During the “Age of Reason” of the late 18th century, the Turkish army lays siege to a European city where a theater production about the extraordinary heroics of famed German aristocrat Baron Münchhausen is underway. A man steps forward to object that the performance is full of inaccuracies, claiming that he is the real Baron Münchhausen (John Neville). When the Turkish army approaches with gunfire, the baron undertakes his latest adventure with his promise to defend the city.
